i was curious so if seems like in a woo we're sort of taking out a second mortgage and selling the families silver to keep our heads above water i guess my preliminary concern some of the impacts on the future phases so when we sold property that was intended to phase two and borrowed funds if phase two allocations and we've got 0 thirty percent confidence rating that where we are now really is the budget where are we going to be in phase two. >> well currently phase two has a one thousand $857 million gap we've increased that number. >> yes. >> so fast two has a long way to go to get the phasing gap that's one the main goals to

12:02 pm
downtown extension now the melrose funds turns out to be more wonderful than we thought and a chunk into the increasing costs of terminal you now look at we are on the road to a $2 billion bus terminal with two no extension i can't imagine the transit will not scream like a stuffed pig in not having their bus storage yard they're a partner but can't be dismissed why not dismiss the artwork and give them the bus yard and detail that those are issues that need to be dealt with in a rigorous manner the park so for the sponsoring having the funding has not been particularly beneficial we'll try a second round that is an additional charge every time
12:03 pm
there is an increase to the melrose funds less mel restraining orders rose funds the melrose was to be leveraged to get even though money from other sources so we can have a dentist extension in no money in the melrose pot the we'll have a $2 million bus term and no twran you will be more bothered by what is going on thank you very much. is there any additional public comment on item 10 seeing none, public comment is closed colleagues that was an informational item item 11. >> introduction of new items. >> any introduction of new items public school public comment on item 11 no public comment is closed. item 12 and public comment. >> all right. please come on up if you have any public
12:04 pm
comment. >> yes. commissioners, i do have something i'd like to tell you as it is now they're calling - there's only one other female that is representing district 5 on the cac and myself i suggest in the future if you want to have diversities throughout the city have not all commissioners commission not all committees you should - one of the members resigns or whatever you should consider a female because having a male dominated we were having only two females and 9 males on the cac right now and it should be more diverse than that you know take into consideration the ethnicity of the individual and what not but
12:05 pm

so you can't save money? it's easy as pie! brown bag your lunch instead of going out. six dollars saved timed 5 days a week times ten years is 21,000 bucks! that's a lotta lettuce. small changes today... big bucks tomorrow. feed the my name is randy shaw. i would like to welcome you all to the tenderloin museum. [ cheers and applause ] >> and you know it's not a
12:19 pm
dream, it really exist. i brought joaquin torres and amy cohen a few weeks ago. i wanted his honest assessment. i said what do you think? he said, you know, i can't believe it's actually going to happen. that is a common thing. and i want to say right at the outset two people who are not with us today who i just want to acknowledge because without their infused spirit and legacy we wouldn't be here. one is lloyd cooper. many of you know that lee roy was a long mentor of mine and from fall of 1979. we met with lee roy in his office and
12:20 pm
he was selling us this idea that tenderloin could be improved and here we are still doing it. it's quite impressive. the other one is cattle, whose wedding photo is here since 1985. he meant so much with my relationship with him because he opened the door to the sro community and became a major donor. we got many many people who care about the tenderloin. you can see it on the board. it's the owners of the tenderloin, people like paul
12:21 pm
brushte and who dug into their pockets and said we believe in this museum. that's what's happened. i want to thank all of those who donated and for believing in us. we didn't think this was going to happen. thank you all. [ applause ] >> i go to a lot of these events and you can have people going on and on thanking each person. everyone here was invited. most of you need some support from the media. the media was great. you all deserve thanks. so please don't associate me not mentioning a person by name as not recognizing. there are some people from institutions that i have to call out today. when we hear about pro bono
12:22 pm
assistance it can often mean a saturday having your staff paint or an architecture firm or it could mean 6 years on a project. i never forget. i feel like some of these folks like seth miser. it's like saying good-bye to the tin man. we've been working on 6 years of working on this museum. perkins and will's contribution. the number of the architecture and design. i do want to call them out. and, [ cheers and applause ] i didn't forget that. there was a series of architects who were working the set and this had to do it during a
12:23 pm
construction period was matsushida. you did all the the stress work. thank you very much. [ applause ] >> and then of course we had to have someone supervise construction. and everyone knows contractor stories and people have the horror stories from their house and wherever you go when you go a people have that story. we don't have that story because we use webcor. you cannot believe the professionalism, the quality. eric was sending e-mails multiple times seven 7 days a week. the organization of this project could never happen without webcor's pro bono support and the dedication of those individuals. we want to call them out and thank them. [ applause ]
12:24 pm
is rodrigo sanity -- santos here. i asked him to give us a price on engineering and he said i'm not giving you a price. i'm doing it for free and he did. [ applause ] our favorite designer is rob duncan here? i saw rob earlier. i know rob is here. all the great designs all the great retail stuff was all designed by rob. rob would occasionally ask for a very small check which no where near covered his cost. it covered the museum design and we got at the elite international firm. thank you, rob. [ applause ] i also want to thank our great hero, my
12:25 pm
hero john burton for coming. great hero for coming. john and i took a driving tour back in 2010 where he pointed out to me all the places he used to gamble and drink in the tenderloin. [ laughter ] and he remembered them. and also i want to thank tom and ron at pbi for going far beyond the call of duty. thank you very much, both of you. [ applause ] so again, i'm not thanking everyone else as well but i want to get to the presentation. a lot of things happened on the morning i -- mayoral's watch. it happened because of mayor lee's watch. people asked me who
12:26 pm
supports this museum. if i said our biggest supporter is mayor lee. he's been with us the entire time and he believes in the tenderloin. what's interesting is all of us who you see here, we all have a long history, but what i learned in researching my book and for this museum is that mayors haven't done very much for the tenderloin in history. they talk a good game and come down for ribbon cutings and they give a lot to non-profit housing but when it comes to this it's been 15 years. we got lucky that mayor lee became mayor. i have to say when you look at the help we got from the mayor's office and when steve comes, he never comes to an
12:27 pm
event. steve came to this event and the support he gave to us. of course amy cohen and joaquin and someone who gave as much help, jeremy. i wish we had a closed circuit so jeremy knows all the help he gave us. that happens with mayor's in the title. that doesn't happen if you don't have a mayor who says i want all the staff to help the tenderloin. ed lee did that. wow further a do, mayor, thank you very much. [ applause ] >> randy, thank you for the introduction. >>mayor edwin m. lee: this is what a sizzler's restaurant looks like. [ laughter ] >> you have to know that part of the history in order to appreciate that line. we certainly do. and those who have been in the tenderloin for many years serving the residents
12:28 pm
here. i think you are all to be congratulated. i know there is an abundant list of people. but i also want to acknowledge those that maybe do not have a big name but are the small business owners within two or 3 blocks from here that said we want this to happen. every police officer that has served this district wanted this to happen. firefighters who have come through here wanted this to happen. nurses, i have a lot of nurses and medical health professionals wanted something here to happen. it shouldn't surprise all of you that when it comes to the tenderloin, when it comes to revitalizing areas in the central market, historically depressed areas, it takes not only the great ground leadership that randy has provided for many years. you have to give randy a huge huge [ applause ] here. [ applause ]
12:29 pm
talk about this. if i had anything do with it is only because he convinced, he was there and you have a reading. this is our history. this is why we came to study law and do civil rights and work in the communities like this. no different way i feel about chinatown and north beach and some areas we worked historically together. but i will also say beyond kind of taking care of our own roots and the people we believe in and giving them the level of respect, i enjoy working with the people you just named. we are working together now today to house what is on the front pages of homeless population and they are doing a terrific job and they are freeing up master leasing with as many units as they can. they are finding us to be more
12:30 pm
incredible partners on these very challenge populations that have a lot of issues and they are centered in central market and tenderloin and we want to help them. i also want to say that in addition to them and the volunteers, there is just an incredible number of people that go unnamed and the staff. i want to also give another shout out to a group of people that continue i think to help revitalize all of san francisco but particularly the most challenging are artist. this museum is part of art. it doesn't surprise me that the museum is the idea that has now come forward to attract investor confidence, to bring people together. and i'm looking at karen from
